Benjamin Nott grabbed the win in the Flinn Stocks while Zach Olger took home the win in the KFC Late Models. Chad Wernette brought home the win in the Allstar Performance IMCA Mods and Andrew Fidler bested a tight field in the Engine Pro Pro Truck division. Finally, Will Stanley made his first run at CMS in a year or so and showed 'em he hadn't forgot how to win as he scored the Street Stock feature. More later on Sunday!

There was a modification to the rules concerning transponders. While it was changed in the rules, I failed to post here it here. This rule was modified April 21st, 2015. It says: "18. Transponders must be mounted on the right side and the back of rear axle and in an orange transponder pouch. If your transponder falls off you may not be scored and you will be responsible for replacing the transponder.Any racer caught trying to modify or deliberately changing location of transponder will be disqualified."  Check with your tech inspector if you have questions.

May 7, 2011

The Engine Pro Pro Trucks lead off the features as Bob Griffin grabbed the early lead and soon opened a ten length lead. Ashlee Scott, Scott Nieman, Allen Welch, and Tim Wood were in a big group behind him. A spin in turn two took away a decent lead but when the green fell again, Griffin took off but got immediate pressure from Nieman. Wood moved to second with four to go only to get loose and fall back behind Neiman and Carl Thayer. Griffin cruised on to take the win over Nieman, Thayer, Wood, Dave Verhaar, Scott, and Dave Peters.
